Third Annual Message 

January 11, 1977. 

Introduction 

In 1973, New Jersey faced several critical problems, in- 
cluding: wildly escalating costs of government and an 
inequitable tax structure bearing those costs ; rising unem- 
ployment and signs of long-term economic trouble; a 
criminal justice system that had lost the public's trust; and 
a backlog of public issues on which the ordinary citizen was 
unable to prevail against well-entrenched, vested interests. 
Perhaps the most basic problem for New Jersey in 1973 was 
a government in which the public was excluded from observ- 
ing, and participating in, many of the major decisions affect- 
ing their daily lives. That way of doing the people 's business 
lacked courage and integrity. We could not be proud of that 
kind of government. 



JOURNAL OP THE SENATE 



This Legislature and this Administration were elected to 
deal with those problems. We have not solved every one. 
We have made some mistakes. But, we have complied a 
remarkable record of achievements and we have created a 
government in which our citizens can take pride — no resident 
of our great State need hang his head when he says he comes 
from New Jersey. 

While we can and should be pleased with what we have 
done, let us resolve to confront with intelligence and courage 
those tasks not yet accomplished. The conventional wisdom 
has it that in a state election year, nothing of signifiance can 
be accomplished in the Legislature. Let us disprove that 
conventional wisdom — let us once again attack the hard 
problems and face the difficult solutions. 

I. Capping Government Costs and Reforming the Tax 

System 

When this Administration took office, New Jersey was 
faced with runaway state and local government costs borne 
by a regressive, inequitable tax system, including a crushing 
property tax, despite the efforts of two previous Governors 
to correct that inequity. 

The decade ending in 1974 saw state budget increases 
averaging 16.8 percent per year. The people saw that the 
costs of doing public business were out of control. The 
public also perceived correctly that the basic state and local 
tax structure — in particular, the reliance on property taxes 
for education — had to be changed. 

How have we dealt with this deepseated problem? What 
more should we do in 1977? 

The Executive Branch instituted a tough zero-base 
budgeting system, while the Legislature took its own steps 
— through a hard-working Joint Appropriations Committee 
— to scrutinize state expenditures as never before. 
Together, we have placed an effective cap on the costs of 



In the past two years, the appropriation to support the 
state budget has increased by only 2.4 percent. This is a 
remarkable achievement in the face of rampant inflation and 
of increased costs in mandated programs : a 43 percent in- 
crease in Medicaid ; a 13 percent increase in income mainte- 
nance and a 31 percent increase in pension and Social 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 



Security costs. The alarming escalation of the previous 
decade has been halted, though not without real pain and 
sacrifice. 

Last year, this Legislature took an extraordinary step 
toward placing limits on government spending at all levels. 
New Jersey is the only State in the nation which by law has 
imposed limitations on the amounts which government at all 
levels may increase their spending. 

State, county and local governments must make hard 
choices about how they can cut spending to fit within the 
limitations of the law. I am proud of our record in keeping 
spending in line even without statutory restrictions. I 
accept the challenge imposed by the new cap laws. 

Unlike our neighbors across the Hudson, we have main- 
tained, even strengthened, the position of public bonds 
issued in New Jersey. Under our effective Qualified Bond 
Acts, Newark, which could not sell bonds at any price in 
December 1975, can now market sizeable bond issues at 
respectable rates. Many other New Jersey municipalities 
and school districts have also been able to market bonds at 
favorable rates. 

By allowing appropriated state-aid funds to serve as 
security for debt service payments, the State is providing 
financial stability and substantial savings for local govern- 
ments — especially our older municipalities — without placing 
any additional burden on the State budget. 

"We have acted to insure that State funds are properly and 
productively spent, no matter where they are spent. I sent 
a special agent to assist in overhauling the financial affairs 
of the Newark school system and draft a set of permanent 
reforms, which this Legislature speedily enacted into law. 
These ref orms are saving an estimated $865,000 a year. 

On a broader scale, we have enacted and implemented a 
program of statewide student performance standards in the 
basic skills to insure that the kids educated in our public 
schools are equipped with the basic tools to which they are 
entitled. 

Most important, we have reformed an inequitable and re- 
gressive tax system. The struggle to provide property tax 
relief for New Jersey homeowners was long and difficult. 
I am proud to have made. that fight. I am proud that the 



JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 



Legislature reached agreement after a tumultuous consti- 
tutional conflict involving all three branches of government. 

What will Tax Reform mean to the people of New Jersey? 
For the State's 1.4 million homeowing families, it will mean 
Homestead Rebate checks averaging $190 per year, with 
senior citizens and disabled persons receiving rebates 
averaging $240. For many homeowners, these rebates will 
exceed the amount of their income tax payment. 

Tenants will share in the concrete benefits of Tax Reform : 
they are afforded a $65 tax credit if they are under 65 years 
of age and a $100 credit if they are senior citizens or dis- 
abled persons. New Jersey commuters who earn all or part 
of their income in other states will share in the full tax 
relief benefits of the program without paying a penny more 
in income taxes. In some cases, they will pay smaller income 
taxes. 

But rebates and credits are only one aspect of Tax Re- 
form. Most of the $374 million allocated to additional state 
school aid will end up in taxpayers' pockets. The program 
places caps on school spending and requires that unbudgeted 
State aid be passed directly through to the taxpayer. 

Another $94 million in property tax relief is apportioned 
among New Jersey's 567 municipalities as revenue sharing. 
This $7.00 for every man, woman and child will be reflected 
in 1977 property tax bills. 

The result will be an end to more than a decade of in- 
tolerable escalation in local property taxes. No long will 
our children just establishing their own homes and our 
senior citizens living on fixed retirement incomes be forced 
to move away from the communities where they have roots. 

I know that our reform program has its critics. I suspect 
this criticism will grow more vigorous and emotional as the 
November election approaches. I stand ready to meet that 
criticism with an open challenge : Show us the better way ! 

It is not enough to oppose the income tax without saying 
where you propose to fund the $750 million in property tax 
relief yielded by the income tax. 

It is not enough to say you are for tax reform, but not this 
tax reform. It is not enough to hint of a secret plan to be 
unveiled later or to promise that some fiscal magic will 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 



reveal itself in the months ahead. There is a workable tax 
reform program in place and the people deserve full and 
open discussion of precisely how the critics propose to im- 
prove upon it. 

If there is a better way, let us test it in the crucible of 
public debate. But let us beware any proposal that would 
merely repeal the income tax and heap a billion dollars in 
local school and government costs back on the local property 
tax — no matter how it may be gift wrapped. 

It is far too late in the game for such simplistic solutions 
to be taken seriously — and the people know it. 

Solutions for Action in 1977 

What more should be done in 1977 to deal with the 
problem of government costs? 

The zero-base budgeting process that New Jersey has 
implemented so effectively provides a basic tool for capping 
the costs of State government. However, we must continu- 
ally reexamine basic functions of government and assess 
whether they are necessary or need to be reformed. I will 
work with the Legislature to design a Sunset process which 
requires a continuing reexamination of these functions, 
without tying government up in a new land of costly red 
tape. 

With fewer Sate employees per capita than 48 other 
states, with our budgets tightly capped, with a highly effec- 
tive Cabinet team, the productivity of our State government 
is very high. But I am determined to improve on that record. 

I propose to create a major new unit within the Treasury 
Department to carry out four major objectives. 

It will undertake intense program and policy analysis of 
selected major programs designed to establish, not only how 
well they accomplish what they set out to do, but whether 
there might be a more effective way of accomplishing the 
same task. It would assess the effectiveness and efficiency 
of the people who make our programs work. And it would 
conduct a continuing review of the flow of federal funds into 
New Jersey as documentation for our efforts to gain a fair 
share of federal funding for Xew Jersey and the other in- 
dustrial states of the Northeast. 

In my First Annual Message, I called for the creation of a 
Task Force on the Business Efficiencv of the Public Schools. 



8 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

That Task Force is preparing recommendations on expan- 
sion of regionalized school services (short of full regional- 
ization), streamlining of business procedures, and smoothing 
operational relationships between school administrators 
and boards of education. I urge that these proposals be 
given special scrutiny. 

I will continue to press for the establishment of minimum 
competency standards for high school graduation. Such 
standards should be set this year and put into force in five 
years to allow high schools and students sufficient time to 
meet those standards. 

The New Jersey Commission on Financing Post-Sec- 
ondary Education is completing a two-and-a-half-year re- 
examination of college and university financing in New 
Jersey and will offer sweeping recommendations affecting 
every aspect of higher education. These recommendations 
will be controversal. They deserve broad public discussion 
and debate in the months ahead. 

I urge immediate consideration of the plan to consolidate 
the five current student aid programs into one compre- 
hensive Tuition Assistance Plan. Swift legislative action 
on this proposal will bring increased efficiency and produc- 
tivity to the student aid system. 

In 1976, the Division of Local Government Services ex- 
tended its financial audit powers to monitor and improve 
the financial management practices of local and regional 
utility authorities. This program will be further expanded 
in the year ahead. 

II. Creating Job Opportunities and Improving the 

Economy 

When this Administration took office, New Jersey's 
economy was in critical condition. In April 1973, the 
Economic Policy Council reported that New Jersey lagged 
behind the rest of the nation in recovering from the recession 
and that this lag reflected major problems in the State's 
economic structure, particularly its manufacturing sector. 
By the start of 1974, the O.P.E.C. oil embargo was simul- 
taneously driving inflation higher and triggering another 
recession that would soon put many more New Jerseyans out 
of work. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 



Fast emergency measures during the first months of this 
Administration helped New Jersey through the immediate 
gasoline crisis. However, the State was left with a badly 
damaged economic structure which would clearly require 
years of hard work to repair. 

We were elected in 1974 to find solutions to this tough 
problem. What have we achieved so far? What remains to 
be done? 

In three years we have put people back to work on vital 
public projects. We have attracted major new private enter- 
prises, and we have confronted the energy crisis head on. 
We also have increased our share of federal funding and 
international investment in jobs for Xew Jerseyans. Let's 
look at the record. 

Early in 1974, I proposed and you quickly adopted legisla- 
tion establishing an Economic Development Authority to 
issue tax free industrial revenue financing bonds. I am 
proud of this agency's remarkable success. Since August 
1974, the XJEDA has approved financing for 241 project.-, 
generating capital investment of $463 million and creating 
nearly 18,000 permanent jobs. An additional 5,000 construc- 
tion workers have been employed in erecting new plants. 

We have reorganized the Division of Economic Develop- 
ment in the Department of Labor and Industry to provide 
a wide range of services to business firms. We have created 
more than 25,000 new jobs and saved another 17,000 jobs by 
retaining firms that were considering moving from the State. 

The Haekensack Meadowlands Development Commission 
is well along on exciting plans for a new industrial and 
office park complex which will generate up to $50-$100 
million in capital investment. This will mean thousands of 
new jobs for Xorth Jersey. 

An Office of State Economic Planning, supported by 
federal funds, is developing a comprehensive planning 
process and coordinating economic policies designed to 
renew the economy. 

The new Capital Budget and Planning Commission, dur- 
ing the first year of operation, was instrumental in develop- 
ing voter approval for $210 million in State bonds for 
mortgage and housing assistance, environmental facilities, 
State institutions, and badlv needed correctional facilities. 



10 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

These bonds will provide for essential capital construction 
and renovations and will create employment for more than 
22,000 people. 

In 1974, 1 promised that every dollar available for capital 
improvements would be spent expeditiously to reduce un- 
employment, especially in the hard hit construction trades. 
Despite the State 's unprecedented fiscal crises, New Jersey 
has secured, and in most cases expended, more than $2.8 
billion State, federal and private dollars for capital im- 
provements since January 1974. The list includes : 

• The Meadowlands Sports Complex, completed within 
budget and on time. 

• More than $1 billion in wastewater treatment facilities, 
constructed largely with federal funds, and improve- 
ments to parks, recreational facilities and water supply 
systems. 

• Some $400 million, again largely from federal sources, 
to improve the Erie Lackawanna Railway, the New 
York and Long Branch Railroad and PATH. 

• $6() million in low-cost financing for low income and 
senior citizen housing, a program blocked by red tape 
until we cut the knot. 

• More than $150 million in low interest financing for 
hospital improvements and expansion and improve- 
ments at our State hospitals and institutions. 

• $100 million in federal funds for various State and local 
public works.. 

These projects have created more than 100,000 temporary 
and permanent jobs for New Jerseyans and represent a 
substantial investment in our economic and social future. 

In April 1975, I established a special Economic Recovery 
Commission to propose action to stimulate New Jersey's 
economy. After exhaustive study, the Commission presented 
53 specific proposals. Most of these recommendations have 
been implemented or are nearing completion. 

"We have stimulated housing development and rehabilita- 
tion, especially in our cities. 

To preserve existing housing, we have enacted a strong 
anti-redlining law and empowered the Mortgage Finance 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 11 

Agency to purchase home improvement loans, increasing the 
availability and lowering the costs of these loans. 

In addition, our State Housing Finance Agency has re- 
mained solvent and productive during a period when finance 
agencies throughout the country were shaken by the New 
York crisis. In fact, the New Jersey Housing Finance 
Agency has led the nation in using the new federal Title 8 
subsidy program to construct new housing and rehabilitate 
existing housing. 

"We have enacted a Uniform Construction Code, a new 
Municipal Land Use Law and a new Soil Erosion and Com- 
pensation Law. The Department of Community Affairs is 
worldng closely with local governments in implementing 
these reforms which cut government red tape, reduce the 
cost of new housing, and establish uniform standards 
throughout the State. 

Innovative housing grants to municipalities under the 
Neighborhood Preservation Program are helping to sta- 
bilize and revitalize urban neighborhocls. I have directed the 
Division of State and Regional Planning to prepare fair 
share housing goals to assure that they are consistent with 
our programs to revitalize the cities and promote compre- 
hensive statewide planning. 

For several years, I have heard businessmen, developers 
and private citizens alike, complain that bureaucratic red 
tape has put a stranglehold on economic development 
activities in New Jersey. In an effort to attack this problem, 
we have created an effective Office of Business Advocacy and 
have imposed a tough 90-day requirement on environmental 
permit processes. 

To spur increased urban economic development and revi- 
talize our cities, we have empowered municipalities to grant 
property tax abatements for commercial and industrial 
development located in areas in need of redevelopment. 

We learned the hard way during the winter of 1973-74 
that the era of cheap and plentiful energy has ended. This 
Administration has developed an admirable record in 
managing our dwindling resources and protecting the in- 
terests of our consumers. 

We have worked vigorously to guard New Jersey's in- 
terests in the energy market. I resisted the ill-considered 



12 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

plan to make New Jersey the nation's single largest 
depository of liquified natural gas and worked instead to 
force the federal government to adopt tough national safety 
standards for this dangerous substance. 

I fought a long and sometimes lonely battle to insure that 
any drilling done off our coast is controlled by the most de- 
manding possible safety standards. The terrible oil spills 
of the fast month point up the risks of making headlong 
decisions regarding offshore resources. 

In order to further diminish the chances for such spills, 
we are making sure that oil drilled off our shore will come 
to us by pipeline, not foreign tanker. Carefully tapped, the 
offshore oil and gas can mean jobs and economic develop- 
ment for Xew Jersey; improperly exploited, they can spell 
disaster. 

During that gasoline emergency, we created a first-rate 
Energy Office. It handled the emergency with decisiveness 
and imagination, serving as a model for several other states. 
The Office continues to monitor the energy situation, re- 
search and planning. 

We have developed a strong proposal for the federal 
government to establish the nation's Solar Energy Research 
Institute in Xew Jersey. Our chances of bringing this im- 
portant new research and development function to the State 
appear good. 

Our energy future should be bright if we are prudent in 
using our existing resources and those off our coast, through 
research and development efforts, and through such im- 
aginative new mechanisms as the Regional Energy and 
Development Corporation, which I presented to President- 
elect Carter. In the near term, however, we must guard our 
interests as we " manage scarcity." 

We have increased Xew Jersey's share of federal spend- 
ing, holding down the burden on our own taxpayers and in- 
suring that a greater share of the stimulative effect of 
government spending reached our economy. Total federal 
outlays coming into Xew Jersey increased by $2.2 billion 
in the past year alone. This was a result of our unified 
Congressional Delegation and our first-class Washington 
Office, backed up by intensified federal relations efforts by 
every cabinet department. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 13 

In the past decade, international investment in New 
Jersey has expanded by more than 200 percent. The greatest 
part of that expansion has occurred in the past two years, 
making New Jersey one of the leading foreign investment 
states in the nation. More than 320 international companies 
have installations in New Jersey employing thousands of 
our citizens. 

Last year, our State government assisted New Jersey 
businesses in selling products and services in Sweden, 
Belgium, Rumania and Saudi Arabia. State officials, work- 
ing with representatives of New Jersey business and labor, 
have encouraged companies from Canada, Germany, Great 
Britain and France to locate manufacturing and service 
facilities in the State. 

Our efforts to stimulate foreign investment in New Jersey 
bore solid results last week when Co-Steel International of 
Canada announced plans to construct a $100 million facility 
in Perth Amboy, culminating two years of work by State 
officials to persuade the company's directors of our unique 
advantages. 

Solutions for Action in 1977 

What additional steps can be taken in 1977 toward solving 
the problem of unemployment? The problem is most 
extreme in our cities where thousands of idle workers live 
in the shadow of aging and abandoned industrial plants. No 
problem deserves higher priority on our agenda for 1977. 

I urge swift passage of legislation arming the Economic 
Development Authority with extraordinary powers to 
designate urban growth zones, to promote their economic 
development, and to consider the actual development by the 
EDA of urban industrial parks in cities throughout the 
State. 

Companion legislation now being prepared would permit 
the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to issue 
tax-free revenue bonds to finance urban economic develop- 
ment projects in the cities of the Port district. 

New Jersey's unemployment problems are shared by the 
other Northeastern industrial states. In the hope of build- 
ing strength through unified effort, I began work two years 
ago to develop what is now the Coalition of Northeast 
Governors. New Jersey played a major role in developing 



14 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

the detailed action agenda adopted by CONEG two months 
ago. 

But the centerpiece of that agenda is a proposed Regional 
Energy and Development Corporation. The Corporation 
would be a self-help mechanism for the states of the Region. 
It would issue taxable bonds backed by federal guarantees. 
It would finance projects to improve the supply of energy to 
the Region and provide other incentives for job-producing 
industry to locate here. 

Unlike our own EDA, the new Corporation would not be 
bound by a $5 million limit on financial commitments. Legis- 
lation implementing this far-reaching proposal will be sub- 
mitted to the Legislature. It deserves your prompt 
attention. 

We should not, however, overlook other avenues of 
progress. During the early 1900 's the film industry grew 
and prospered in our State, but in the last 30 years it has 
languished and we lost those jobs. I established a Motion 
Picture and Television Commission by Executive Order. I 
urge you today to enact legislation to establish this Com- 
mission on a full-time basis and to provide the necessary 
financial resources to bring a share of this great industry 
back to its birthplace. 

Transportation is an essential component in any effort to 
attract economic investment and jobs. 

New Jersey began subsidizing its deficit-ridden railroads 
more than 15 years ago on an emergency basis. The program 
has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. It has been 
extended to bus lines. Many of the buses and railroad 
coaches in service in New Jersey today are owned by the 
State. Operating assistance costs the taxpayers some $70 
million a year. 

This year, for the first time, we have conducted an exten- 
sive study of the State's role in public transportation. That 
review by the Department of Transportation demonstrates 
clearly that major reform of our mass transportation pro- 
gram is essential. 

I propose that we create a Public Transit Agency within 
the DOT to centralize the regulatory functions now per- 
formed by the Commuter Operating Agency and Board of 
Public Utility Commisisoners. The PTA should strengthen 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 15 

our methods of contracting for service. We must have firmer 
control over how public monies are spent by the private bus 
lines. We must provide fiscal incentives for them to cut 
costs of service and to increase ridership. The PTA should 
be empowered to supplant private management and take 
over operation of bus lines where such action is warranted. 
There should be provision for regional transit agencies to 
be established by a county or groups of neighboring 
counties. 

Legislation encompassing the recommendations of this 
mass transportation study is being prepared. I urge prompt 
action to put this vital service on a more rational and effec- 
tive basis. 

I have been a continuing critic of the Port Authority of 
Xew York and New Jersey for treating New Jersey like a 
step-child to New York City. We have rarely gotten a fair 
share of the attention and funding needed to solve our trans- 
portation problems. 

I shall continue speaking out when the Authority's sec- 
tions warrant criticism. But I must acknowledge the begin- 
ning of increased concern by the Authority to New Jersey's 
problems. In recent months, the Authority has acted to im- 
prove access to and utilization of Newark International Air- 
port and to renovate Newark's Penn Station. Is has also 
played a helpful role in the development of Liberty State 
Park and in the search for new industry. 

These positive results are encouraging, but do not by any 
means redress the long years of neglect of New Jersey. 

The Authority must develop plans to improve the traffic 
flow to and from New York City, including significant 
advances in mass transit as well as freer access through the 
current vehicular tunnels and bridges. If necessary, we 
should investigate new access routes required to alleviate 
the traffic congestion caused by backups on New Jersey 
approach roads. 

To argue that this would be monumentally expensive is to 
state the obvious. But the price tag shrinks when compared 
to the alternative; thousands of cars, buses and trucks 
backed up for 45 minutes and longer ten or twelve times a 
week waiting to get into the tunnel or onto the bridge, wast- 
ing millions of man-hours of work time each month and 



16 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

spewing uncalculated tons of exhaust emissions into the air 
without any benefit in return. 

The suggestion that it must always be that way is in- 
tolerable. 

Voter approval of the constitutional referendum per- 
mitting casino gambling in Atlantic City presents both an 
opportunity and a challenge for this State. Casinos and re- 
lated activities can create new jobs, attract new capital to 
New Jersey, and spur the rejuvenation of our world- 
renowned tourist and convention industry, in Atlantic City 
and throughout our shore area. 

But we must proceed with caution. It would be a disaster 
to create nothing more than an island of new hotels in a sea 
of urban decay, or a regional economy whicli will go bust the 
moment casino gambling is legalized in other states. 

The implementing legislation must include restrictions on 
credit, on hours of operation, and on activities consistent 
with the family resort character of Atlantic City. It must 
include mandatory controls on internal casino operations 
and rigorous licensing standards to assure the integrity of 
ownership and management. 

Because of the unique need for the most detailed possible 
legislative direction, I propose that the bill incorporate the 
initial set of regulations to govern casino gambling, subject 
to later modification by the Commission. If it takes longer 
that way, it will be time well spent. 

In addition, we have won approval for $300,000 in federal 
funding for an Office of Casino Policy attached to the 
Governor's Office. This operation will enable us to track 
more accurately the movement of organized crime figures, 
their associates and their money and exclude them from 
casino operations and related industries. "We will assure the 
honesty and integrity of New Jersey casino gambling at all 
costs. 

We must do more to eliminate unnecessary delay of com- 
mercial and industrial projects caused by government's 
complex regulatory procedures. I will submit draft legisla- 
tion creating a master application procedure for " one-stop" 
service from State government. This service will guarantee 
the applicant an answer on every permit necessary for his 
project within 120 days after filing the completed applica- 
tion. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 17 

One of New Jersey's major competitive advantages is its 
abundant supply of productive inventors. I urge your early 
approval of the proposed Office for the Promotion of 
Technical Innovation to help New Jersey inventors find the 
capital and other resources needed to turn their ideas into 
job-producing realities. 

In addition, I propose to create a State Science Advisory 
Council to provide expert advice on complex scientific and 
science-related questions facing many State agencies. This 
Council, with a small federally-funded staff, would be 
charged with examining issues such as the best means of 
controlling environmentally-induced cancers, how to attract 
more research and development activity to New Jersey, and 
ways in which rapidly changing agricultural technologies 
can be put to work to enhance the productivity of New Jersey 
farms. 

The Mortgage Finance Agency will sell nearly $100 
million in urban neighborhood loan program bonds this year 
to channel investment funds into redlined urban neighbor- 
hoods. These tax-free bonds will pay only 7.5 percent 
interest, saving $11,520 over the life of a 30-year, $30,000 
mortgage at 9 percent. This innovative program will help 
restore strength and vitality to the cities of New Jersey. 

The severity of the recent recession has taxed our unem- 
ployment compensation system beyond its limits. A Task 
Force I created has recently completed an exhaustive review 
of the situation. I shall submit legislation implementing 
many of this Task Force's thoughtful recommendations and 
necessary reforms to achieve a sound, efficient unemploy- 
ment insurance system. 

I have been committed to revision of our Workers' Com- 
pensation Laws to eliminate abuses, accelerate the process 
of granting awards, get more of the benefit dollar to 
seriously injured workers and to make the costs competitive 
with other state's programs. 

We have been able to accomplish a great deal through 
administrative reforms. But legislation is needed to imple- 
ment the remaining necessary changes. 

A healthy economy is the cornerstone of society. Unless 
young people can find meaningful employment, reasonably 
aspire to home ownership and educate their own children; 
unless our senior citizens can live out their lives in dignity 
and security, all else is of little consequence. 



18 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

III. Fighting Crime 

In 1973, New Jersey faced rising crime rates and a 
criminal justice system that was beginning to break down 
under the strain. Our system of dealing with juveniles failed 
to distinguish between those who clearly deserved punish- 
ment and those who merely needed supervision and help. 

Antiquated and confusing criminal laws made prosecution 
of adult offenders needlessly difficult and contributed to an 
enormous backlog of cases. Rahway Prison had exploded, 
demonstrating as nothing else could that we could not safely 
house the criminals we sought to keep off the street. More- 
over, there was no overall plan for improving the corrections 
system. 

As a former prosecutor and judge, I came to the job of 
Governor with high hopes of making the fight against crime 
a more effective enterprise. I know each of you shared the 
same ambition. How have we dealt with this problem ? What 
more must we do I 

Our Department of Law and Public Safety has built a 
record of achievement, innovation in rooting out public 
corruption, fighting the illicit drug trade, breaking up anti- 
competitive business relationships, streamlining the State 
Police, and running what may very well be the best State 
civil law service in the country. 

Because the corrections system needed a complete over- 
haul, I commissioned a distinguished Task Force to create 
the State's first Corrections Master Plan. One of its major 
recommendations was that the corrections function be per- 
formed by a separate department because of the direct con- 
nection between good corrections management and the 
public safety. We implemented that recommendation last 
year. I fully expect our new Corrections Department to 
attain the major objectives identified by the Corrections 
Master Plan with the full cooperation of the Legislature and 
Courts. 

Those objectives are : to provide maximum security con- 
finement of individuals convicted of violent crimes and 
others who must be separated from the community; to 
develop correctional alternatives for non-violent offenders 
who will respond to community-based programs in coopera- 
tion Avith local and county officials ; and to implement special 
juvenile programs. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 19 

The rising incidence of juvenile crime is of special con- 
cern. In December, 1973, the juvenile delinquency law was 
revised to distinguish between juveniles who have com- 
mitted adult crimes and juveniles in need of supervision — 
those guilty of such uniquely juvenile offenses as truancy 
or incorrigibility. It fell to this Administration in its first 
months to implement this complex new law and the results 
are beginning to become evident. 

Other states now follow our lead in recognizing that 
juveniles who have committed only typically juvenile 
offenses should be guided toward responsible adulthood 
while juveniles guilty of adult antisocial behavior should be 
treated more toughly, so that they will not continue to 
threaten society at large. 

In many states, white collar crime has flourished in the 
Medicaid Program. The federal government last year 
singled out New Jersey for its outstanding efforts in policing 
Medicaid. We have increased civil and criminal penalties 
for Medicaid fraud. We increased manpower in screening 
and enforcement units to make it still more difficult to cheat 
Medicaid. 

We have been equally tough in other forms of white collar 
crime — our professional boards have increased their 
scruting and severity of their penalties to bring a new level 
of discipline to the profession they govern. 

For the past two years, I have had the honor of serving as 
Chairman of the National Advisory Committee on Criminal 
Justice Standards and Goals. This distinguished panel has 
now issued two volumes of detailed recommendations. I 
believe they will be well-received by the new Administration 
in Washington and will have a positive, long-run impact on 
the nation's criminal justice system. 

Solutions for Action in 1977 

What more should we be doing in 1977 to come to grips 
with the crime problem in New Jersey? 

We must modernize, clarify and toughen the criminal 
laws of this State, and place responsibility for shaping the 
criminal law squarely in the hands of the Legislature where 
it properly belongs. 



20 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

The proposed Penal Code provides for definite, rather 
than indeterminate, sentences fashioned to fit the crime and 
the criminal, a concept which is consistent with the proposed 
Corrections Master Plan. 

It will clear the books of archaic and ill-defined laws and 
prevent the acquittal of defendants because of technical con- 
flicts in our criminal statutes. 

And I propose creation of a Joint Legislative Committee 
on the Criminal Code to guard against future conflicts and 
inconsistencies in the criminal statutes. 

The Committee should be required to review every bill 
that would amend or supplement the criminal law and advise 
the Legislature as to how it can be integrated with the 
criminal code without inconsistency or overlap. 

It should monitor the courts and make annual reports to 
the Governor and Legislature on the adequacy and con- 
sistency of sentences, the quality and effectiveness of 
prosecutions and the speediness of trials. The Joint Com- 
mittee would also increase the Legislature's capacity to 
formulate prompt and wellreasoned responses to future 
court decisions which impose constructions on the criminal 
statutes. 

Justice must be meted out more swiftly and certainly. An 
effective, speedy trial program requires a cooperative effort 
by every element of the criminal justice system and the 
Legislature. We are experimenting with administrative 
programs which streamline prosecutions involving violent 
offenders. 

We must scale down our reliance on the criminal courts 
to deter every form of antisocial behavior. Effective alterna- 
tive deterrents, including civil penalties and injunctions, can 
work as well as criminal penalties without clogging the 
criminal calendars. 

The Legislature should relieve the criminal courts of 
some cases involving violations of labor law, election law 
and the laws on education. Tough fines and civil remedies 
enforceable through civil action should be substituted for 
existing criminal sanctions in these areas. We must confine 
the criminal law to the most serious and dangerous of anti- 
social conduct or abuses of public trust. Every proposed 
bill should be judged in terms of society's overriding 
interest in the speedy trial of offenders. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 21 

But we must be tougher on the quiet but growing menace 
of white collar crime. Pending legislation would substan- 
tially increase the penalties which can be imposed on white 
collar criminals and corrupt public officials and I look 
forward to its speedy passage. 

I proposed last year that we abandon the custom of pro- 
tecting from publicity juveniles who engage in violent crime 
and terrorism. The Chief Justice has established a task 
force to review this issue, and to propose means to insure 
that a judge is fully aware of a juvenile 's past record when 
disposing of a case. We must develop legislation which 
increases our ability to deal effectively with violent juvenile 
crime. 

We must also continue to press for the professionalization 
of law enforcement. At present there are five counties which 
do not have full-time prosecutors. It should be our common 
objective that by January 1978, these counties will have 
joined the State's professional law enforcement network on 
a full-time basis. 

1Y. Advocacy for People 

Consumers, senior citizens, the minorities, poor people, 
families yearning for clean air and water: whatever their 
specific concern, citizens in 1973 needed a state government 
that would help fight their fights. They wanted a govern- 
ment that would stand with them when the chips were down, 
not against them. 

We were elected to provide that kind of active, involved, 
caring government. What is our record so far? What more 
should we be doing? 

We have created the Department of the Public Advocate 
— an agency unique among the 50 states. Its broad mandate 
enables the Public Advocate to truly represent citizens in 
their dealings with business corporations, government at all 
levels, and organized interest groups. 

The Advocate has fought for consumers in public utility 
and insurance rate setting processes ; saving as much as $1 
billion in consumer costs. The Public Advocate has fought 
to help individuals subject to involuntary civil commit- 
ment procedures, the developmentally disabled, tenants in 
enforcing the Truth in Renting Act, and the general public 



22 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

in enforcing* our new Sunshine Law. Since 1974, it has pro- 
cessed 15,000 individual citizen complaints. 

There was a lot of scoffing when I first proposed the Public 
Advocate concept. Today, 38 other states are using our 
Public Advocate as a model as they design similar agencies. 

When I ran for Governor, I promised a government more 
responsive to the needs of the elderly. I promised benefits 
for older tenants comparable to the senior citizen property 
tax exemption. Our Tax Reform Program fulfills this 
promise. 

I promised to establish a program of part-time employ- 
ment for the elderly through a State Employment Job Bank. 
That has been done and will be expanded in the coming year. 
1 promised to begin distribution of surplus food to non-profit 
organizations serving hot food to the elderly and that has 
been done. The number of senior citizens served by the 
Division on Aging's nutrition projects has increased 
three-fold from 5,000 to 15,000 over the past three year. 

"We have expanded our home health program for the 
elderly from $1.2 million in federal Title XX funds in fiscal 
1974 to $3.2 million in fiscal 1977. Total expenditures on 
seniors ' programs under Title XX have increased from $4.3 
million in fiscal 1974 to $10.7 million in fiscal 1977. In addi- 
tion, the Legislature authorized and we have implemented 
a drug reimbursement program for the elderly so that they 
will no longer have to skip a meal or two to pay for 
medication. 

Last year, I asked for legislation authorizing local school 
districts to use school buses to transport the elderly. The 
Legislature has passed such a bill and I shall sign it into 
law. We have expanded the senior citizen reduced fare pro- 
gram for railroads and subways and put 444 "kneeling" 
buses for the elderly and disabled into service. 

In 1973, the costs of health care were soaring, yet little 
was being done to implement a hospital cost containmeni 
program that had been on the books for two years. Only a 
token amount — approximately $5 million per year — was 
pared from hospital budgets in a rubber stamp budget 
review process. The health care consumer suffered the con- 
sequences. In the first year of this Administration's 
hospital cost control program, nearly $100 million was saved 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 23 

and this saving was passed directly on to Blue Cross sub- 
scribers and the Medicaid Program. 

The Department of Health has acted vigorously to pre- 
vent unnecessary proliferation of health care facilities. Our 
tough hospital cost control program has served as a model 
for other states seeking to contain the relentless increase in 
health care costs. 

We have acted to help consumers deal more effectively 
with an impersonal and sometimes confusing marketplace. 
We have increased efforts to prosecute licensed individuals 
before appropriate licensing boards. The definition of 
charitable organization has been broadened to minimize 
fraudulent activities in fund raising. Court action has been 
used for the first time to shut down illegitimate charity 
drives which preyed on Xew Jerseyans' generosity. 

Under a bill I signed last March, county and local con- 
sumer protection offices gained general enforcement powers. 
In the first 11 months of 1976, 10 county and 59 municipal 
consumer affairs offices saved consumers an estimated $1.1 
million. 

Our physical environment continues to be the source of 
great concern and controversy. 

The term "environment" means to me more than pre- 
servation, more than cleaning up our air and water ; it means 
that New Jersey with all its problems — its decaying cities, 
garbage dumps, and oil refineries — must retain its unique 
character as a balance of contrasting, some times conflicting 
interests which make it a vital and exciting place to live. 

In trying to strike the proper balance on particular issues, 
I have made hard decisions. I have blocked an unwarranted 
extension of the Xew Jersey Turnpike through the Pine 
Barrens. I have fought for a more cautious and thoughtful 
offshore oil and gas policy by the federal government, a 
policy which recognizes the interests of Xew Jersey in pre- 
venting incomptaible onshore development. 

I have sought sensible solutions to our water supply 
problems, and pressed for alternatives other than massive 
projects like the Tocks Island Dam. 



24 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

In 1977, we will begin to draw water from Round Valley 
for the first time since that magnificent reservoir was 
created more than 15 years ago. 

This Administration has put New Jersey in first place in 
new sewer construction ; promoted urban park development; 
implemented the nation's first program to preserve farm- 
land: initiated comprehensive solid waste legislation, 
planning and recycling; and developed sensible plans for 
preserving our costal areas. 

Together, we have safeguarded our economy and environ- 
ment with enactment of the new oil spill liability law. This 
bill will provide prompt and full compensation if a disas- 
trous spill strikes our coast or wetlands, and furthers our 
efforts to find better ways to maintain a clean ocean. We 
have begun to deal with the sludge problem through our 
pilot program in Camden and we are facing up to other 
tough problems of ocean policy. 

I have been a proud advocate of the rights of people, no 
matter what their race or sex, to work in jobs for which they 
are qualified. 

Executive Order No. 14 requires affirmative action within 
state government to employ minorities and women at least 
in proportion to their population in the surrounding labor 
market, at all levels of responsibility. 

The Legislature also passed and my administration is im- 
plementing sweeping legislation to guard against discrim- 
ination by firms holding contracts with local, county and 
state government. 

New Jersey residents have never had access to the kind of 
television coverage of state news and public concerns that 
they deserve. We have fought through the courts and the 
Federal Communications Commission to get more adequate 
coverage of New Jersey by stations on the VHF band, all 
of which operate in neighboring states. Together with the 
Coalition for Fair Broadcasting, we have achieved a 
measure of success, despite an uncooperative FCC. Cover- 
age, particularly by the Philadelphia stations, has increased 
markedly. 

Our New Jersey Public Broadcasting Authority has 
partially filled the void through extensive coverage of special 
events and nightly newscasts on its network of our UHF 
stations across the state. But much more needs to be done. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 25 

Negotiations have begun with WNET (Channel 13) lead- 
ing to a new, more substantial half -hour program of New 
Jersey news jointly financed and co-produced by WXET 
and Jerseyvision. This program would be telecast seven 
nights a week on Channel 13 and Channel 12 on the VHF 
band as well as on Jerseyvision 's four UHF stations. I shall 
include provisions for this new undertaking in my proposed 
budget. 

This expanded news coverage will reach a much larger 
potential audience than Jerseyvision can reach alone. I 
believe this is an important step toward increased public 
awareness of public issues facing New Jersey. But it would 
be a mistake for anyone — particularly executives of the New 
York and Philadelphia stations — to conclude that this will 
solve the problem. We must continue the long battle to get 
adequate coverage of New Jersey on all the television sta- 
tions that are required as a condition of their licenses to 
serve the New Jersey market. 

Our new Truth-in-Renting Act is being implemented to 
advise all concerned of their rights and responsibilities and 
to achieve smoother landlord-tenant relations. 

We have taken important steps toward achieving equity 
between public and non-public education opportunities, 
primarily through passage and implementation of the 
non-public school text book law. We can be proud then, that 
during a period of great fiscal constraint this state govern- 
ment has been able to advocate for people and respond to 
their diverse needs. 

Solutions for Action in 1977 

In what other ways can we improve on that record f 

(1) The automobile insurance market is in a state of 
crisis, not only in New Jersey, but across most of the nation. 

Since November, 1974, economic realities have forced our 
Commissioner of Insurance to grant rate increases averag- 
ing 51 percent. Other metropolitan areas have granted even 
larger increases. 

When New Jersey rejected still another round of rate in- 
creases last month, elements of the industry responded with 
threats to pull out of the state and other well-orchestrated 
efforts to wage a war of nerves against the driving public. 



26 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

Growing numbers of motorists are unable to afford the 
coverage required by law. An estimated 200,000 New Jersey 
motorists are driving without any insurance. Another half 
million have been turned away by the open market and 
forced to seek coverage through our assigned risk pool, even 
though most of them have clean driving records. And the 
number of such motorists is growing. 

Fortunately, New Jersey — unlike any other state — has 
kept a lid on assigned risk rates so the driver with a clean 
record pays no more for insurance through the pool than 
he or she would be charged on the open market. 

But stop gap regulatory measures are not enough to re- 
verse an alarming national trend. 

It is imperative that we establish a state reinsurance 
facility to guarantee the right of every driver to coverage 
by the company of his choice. Rates should be established 
on the basis of the driving record establised by the insured 
and other objective factors within his or her control. 

Involvement in an accident or conviction of a moving 
violation are valid reasons for charging a driver a higher 
rate ; the driver's age, gender, place of residence, or changes 
in occupation or marital status are not. 

The reinsurance plan must, of course, permit the com- 
panies to reinsurance any risks they decline to carry for any 
reason and provide a fair formula for spreading excess 
losses. 

And we must consider basic changes in the no-fault law, 
which has yet to fulfill its promise of limiting accident litiga- 
tion and related costs. Our $200 threshold is the lowest in 
the nation and simply makes no sense in these inflationary 
times. Let us raise it to a rational level so that only the more 
serious claims will reach the courts. 

Finally, we must be fully prepared to set up our own state 
insurance facility as a last resort, should the insurance 
companies make good on their recent threats to stop writing 
policies and pull out of New Jersey. 

Inflation continues to exact a hidden tax on all Americans, 
but most harshly upon our senior citizens and others who 
must live on fixed incomes. Nowhere is this more evident 
than in the sharply escalating cost of heat, light and tele- 
phone service. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 27 

The New Jersey Public Utilities Commission and our 
unique Public Advocate have earned national acclaim for 
their hard-nosed approach to appliactions for increases in 
the cost of these necessities of life. The PUC has rejected 
some applications outright. It has imposed a modified life- 
line feature in telephone rates designed to ease the burden 
on the elderly and others who make relatively few calls. 

There are limits, however, to what can be done by even 
the most innovative regulation under existing statutes. 

I shall, therefore, submit for your consideration next 
month legislation enabling the PUC to institute a Lifeline 
Rate Structure for gas and electric, as well as telephone 
service. I urge you to act quickly and responsibily to 
assure that the modest utility needs of senior citizens and 
other needy New Jerseyans will be met at a cost within 
their means. 

The cost of providing this needed relief should not result 
in higher utility rates for other consumers. I propose in- 
stead that the cost be borne by the existing tax on the gross 
receipts of public utility firms. 

The legislation I send you will provide a cap on the yield 
from that tax to the municipalities in which generating sta- 
tions and other utility installations are located. No munici- 
pality would suffer any loss in its present income from the 
gross receipts tax, but future increases in the yield from that 
tax would be dedicated to support Lifeline Rates and other 
programs to benefit senior citizens. 

We need more doctors and other medical and scientific 
personnel to provide health care in New Jersey. This 
Administration's commitment to expanding the facilities of 
the College of Medicine and Dentistry, and legislation signed 
this past year to raise the ceilings on medical school loans 
are important steps, but much more can be done. 

We need a nurse practitioner's program. We should 
license physician's assistants to practice. We should en- 
courage new physicians to serve in underserviced areas by 
giving medical school loans in return for service in such 
areas. And we should remove any licensing requirements 
which do nothing to insure quality health care. 

The Department of Health has moved aggressively to 
bring hospital rates under control. I urge enactment of a 



28 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

pending bill to extend the rate setting program to all hospital 
insurance plans. 

Recently the National Cancer Institute published statis- 
tics suggesting that New Jersey ranks among the highest in 
mortality from a variety of cancers, suggesting, even, that 
New Jersey is the nation's Cancer Alley. 

Last May, I created by Executive Order a Cabinet level 
Committee on Cancer Control and charged it with develop- 
ing a comprehensive cancer control plan. Our highest 
priority is to find out who is contracting cancer as a result 
of which exposures, so we can design effective programs to 
eliminate exposure to cancer causing agents. 

The Department of Environmental Protection is expand- 
ing its monitoring program to test the carcinogenic potential 
of air and water samples. My Cabinet Committee has 
applied for $6.6 million in federal funding to implement tins 
and other efforts. 

It is essential that we establish an Incidence Registry to 
develop detailed statistics on exactly who gets Cancer in 
New Jersey and the extent and nature of their exposure to 
carcinogens and other suspected cancer-causing agents. 
I shall ask the Legislature to authorize such a registry. New 
Jersey must proceed as no other state has done toward the 
reasonable and appropriate regulation of dangerous sub- 
stances in our environment. 

We should revise our public assistance law to put many 
idle workers now on welfare into public works jobs — not 
mothers of young children or those who have physical, 
mental or emotional handicaps which make them unemploy- 
able, but healthy, able-bodied workers who have exhausted 
their unemployment insurance benefits and have turned to 
the general assistance welfare program for assistance. 

Legislation now being drafted would authorize welfare 
officials to determine which of these workers are employable 
and require them to work on state and local public works 
projects. The program is being carefully designed to assure 
that it does not take jobs away from anyone now employed. 

I urge your careful consideration of this program. We 
should clear our general assistance rolls of those who are 
fully capable of working as long as there is honest, produc- 
tive work available for them to do. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 29 

We must also revise the program for Aid to Families of 
the Working* Poor. Approximately one-third of the 38,000 
families receiving assistance under this plan can receive 
greater benefits at less overall expense to this state if this 
program is revised to provide for a program for aid to de- 
pendent children with unemployed fathers. I urge the 
Legislature to approve this program and, in the process, 
save the state an estimated $6 million per year in welfare 
payments. 

Millions of New Jersey ans and visitors to our state joined 
in marking our nation's Bicentennial with thousands of 
special events across the state, culminating in the Ten 
Crucial Days Festival. The success of these celebrators 
should be a source of pride to all New Jerseyans. It was a 
tribute to our State Bicentennial Commission and its 
counterparts at municipal and county levels. 

Another highlight of the Bicentennial Year was the 
establishment of Liberty State Park, with its spectacular 
view of the Statute of Liberty, Ellis Island and the New 
York-New Jersey harbor. More than 300,000 people have 
visited Liberty Park since the first 35-acre section was 
opened last June. 

This modest beginning has attracted national interest. 
The 800 acres still to be developed holds tremendous 
potential. I believe it will become a great recreation and 
historic area without parallel in the Northeast. 

Because of its importance to New Jersey and to the 
nation, I shall appoint a special commission to guide the 
future development of Liberty Park and assure that its 
potential is realized with taste and imagination. I am 
pleased that John T. Connor, the distinguished former U.S. 
Secretary of Commerce, has accepted my invitation to serve 
as chairman of that commission. 

I shall be sending you a program to assure the future of 
our unique Pine Barrens and the huge underground 
reservoir of our water below them so essential to New 
Jersey's future. 

This sanctuary of quiet streams, unspoiled woodlands and 
agriculture must be maintained as a balance to the cities and 
heavily developed suburbs of our state. 



30 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

While awaiting a full program currently being prepared, 
I urge you to enact the Wild and Scenic Rivers Bill which 
will protect the Mullica River system from unplanned piece- 
meal development. 

I urge your prompt consideration and passage of three 
bills now pending which would ease burdens and equalize 
opportunities for children attending nonpublic schools. The 
parents of these children carry a full share of the tax burden 
of financing our public schools. Ironically, not only do they 
receive no direct educational benefits from their tax dollars 
but, by sending their children to private schools actually 
lighten the load on the public system. 

I urge prompt legislative action to provide that same sub- 
sidy for pupils' lunches in the non-public schools — under the 
National School Lunch Program — now provided for pupils' 
lunches in the public schools. We should consider providing 
diagnosis of physical handicaps, speech therapy and non- 
instructional auxiliary services to public and non-public 
school children on an equal basis. 

I have directed the Department of the Public Advocate to 
develop a system for the protection and advocacy of those 
with developmental disabilities and we have received a 
federal grant to carry out this new change. 

In addition, legislation pending before the Senate would 
guarantee civil rights and treatment standards for the 
mentally ill. It should be enacted promptly. 

V. Restoring Integrity to State Government 

When we came into office, we inherited a state government 
that lacked fundamental integrity. The public believed the 
awarding of contracts could be influenced for the price of a 
contribution to the right political party at the right time. 
State officials were not required to reveal their financial 
situations and were too often allowed to operate in serious 
conflicts of interest. The people were excluded when im- 
portant state business was done by key committees, boards 
and commissions. Who could be proud of this kind of 
government? 

We came into office pledged to run an open government 
and return integrity to the State House. What have we done 
to fulfill this most fundamental of all the promises we made 
to the people of New Jersey ? 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 31 

We now have a law to provide for the public financing' of 
gubernatorial campaigns to stem the flow of private wealth 
into political hands, and this law is being enforced. We 
should extend public financing to primary campaigns. We 
must free the political process from the chains of wealth. 

The shades of government have been raised so the public 
may view the internal workings of public bodies at all levels 
of government. Our Sunshine Law requires public notifica- 
tion of the time, place, and nature of business to be con- 
ducted by any governmental agency for the first time in 
State history. The sunshine of public scrutiny helps insure 
the integrity of state and local government. 

This administration is conducting" the state's business 
professionally, not politically. The state's revenue raising 
and spending practices are conducted openly for all to see. 

• An Architect/Engineer Selection Board screens appli- 
cants to guarantee the award of design contracts solely on 
the basis of merit and cost, not political favoritism. Saving 
to date, $450,000. 

• Professional contracts, for accounting, auditing, steno- 
graphic and similar services, are awarded by competitive 
bid rather than by waiver, as was common practice in the 
past. Saving to date, $715,000. 

• We eliminated favoritism in the selection of leased 
office space, serving unnecessary brokers' fees, and are 
experimenting with bidding of leased space. 

• We saved $1.5 million in insurance costs by eliminating 
brokers' services and restructing policies on a businesslike 
basis. 

• We award state time-deposit accounts by bid to the bank 
which offers the highest interest rate. Additional earnings 
to date, $200,000. Previously, these deposits were placed in 
financial instiutions chosen by the Treasurer. 

• We initiated "A Taxpayer's Guide to the Budget," pro- 
viding for the first time an explanation of the State Budget 
in Simple English. 

We have acted, not only to prevent conflicts of interest, 
but also to avoid any conduct that might create the appear- 
ance of a conflict. Guidelines issued bv the Executive Com- 



32 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

mission on Ethical Standards strictly regulate the receipt 
of gifts. 

We have made changes to encourage citizen participation 
in the electoral process. The cornerstone of our program is 
postcard registration, an unqualified success. This program 
with adequate safeguards, has made it easier and more con- 
venient for 664,352 qualified voters to register since August 
1974. 

This administration has taken other unparalleled steps to 
insure the integrity of the governmental process. I have 
required some 275 top officials in the Executive Branch to 
disclose their personal finances. This disclosure program, 
which I initialed shortly after taking office, quickly became 
the subject of litigation and its constitutionality has recently 
been upheld by the Appellate Division of Superior Court. 

Solutions for Acting in 1977 

What further steps should be taken in 1977 to insure in- 
tegrity to state government? 



&' 



In my 1976 annual message, I called for an end to the 
archaic practice or "Senatorial courtesy" allowing one 
Senator to blackball a nominee, without any public account- 
ing. This practice may constitute a courtesy to individual 
senators, but it constitutes a profound discourtesy to the 
public. I ask once again that it be ended. 

Persons having business with various state regulatory 
agencies often appear before hearing officers. These hearing 
officers are often personnel who work in the agency or 
private individuals specially appointed to hear particular 
cases. This system often gives the appearance of basis in 
favor of the agency. 

I propose creation of an independent Office of Hearing 
Examiners to hear all contested cases from all departments, 
with appropriate and necessary exceptions. Such an office 
should develop expertise in particular areas of the law, and 
yet maintain an objective and independent position. There 
would be significant benefits to the state and its citizens in 
the form of greater fairness, greater uniformity in pro- 
cedural rules, and greater overall proficiency of hearing 
examiners. 



TUESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1977 33 

The current New Jersey Conflicts of Interest Law is 
burdened with inconsistent standards and vague language. 
It should be overhauled and extended to municipal and 
county governments. It should spell out firm guidelines for 
government officials who represent themselves or others 
before government agencies, the types of contracts and 
business dealings in which they can participate, and what 
types of outside activities and employment they can accept. 

The Executive Commission on Ethical Standards would 
be restructured to supervise local as well as state employees' 
activities. This action should help restore public confidence 
in government and public officials. 

We have forced financial disclosure by top state officials 
through Executive Order, but it is time this policy was 
codified in statutory form. I will submit legislation to do 
this, and I urge the Legislature to adopt similar disclosure 
requirements for its own members. 

Conclusion 

We are entering an election year. There are those who, 
whatever their motives, will belittle the record of achieve- 
ment compiled by this Legislature and this Administration. 

But the people will recognize in time that we have 
succeeded in capping the costs of government and reforming 
a bad tax structure ; they know that we have used every 
tool at our disposal to create jobs ; and they know that we 
have done far more to fight crime and to meet the needs of 
the ordinary citizen than prior administrations. 

Perhaps most important, the people know that this 
Administration and this Legislature have brought new in- 
tegrity and openness to State government in New Jersey. 
The snipers and distracters will make fun of us. Sometimes 
it is embarrassing to ran an open government, sometimes the 
sunshine we have let into State government exposes our 
warts and blemishes along with everything else. 

But the record is there for all to see. I am proud to be 
judged on that record, and this Legislature should be, too. 

There is much work still to be done. The common intelli- 
gence is that nothing much of real significance can be 
accomplished in such a year, in which every seat in this 
Legislature and the office I hold will be at stake.

Mrs. Lipman offered the following resolution which was 
read and adopted: 

Whereas, January 15, 1977, marks the 48th anniversary 
of the birth of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ; 
and, 

Whereas, Until his untimely death at the hands of an 
assassin on April 4, 1968, Doctor King was in the forefront 
of the continuing struggle to establish true justice, equality 
and brotherhood among men; and, 

Whereas, To citizens of his own race Dr. King's achieve- 
ments gave new pride and hope and encouragement, and to 
all Americans he pointed the way to a triumph over our 
national legacy of racial divisions ; and, 

Whereas, With a courage born of his great dream of a 
nation redeemed from the shame and torment of racial 
strife, Dr. King knowingly and resolutely faced the menaces 
of an aroused bigotry, which eventually claimed his life at 
the age of 39, but can never obliterate his immortal dream; 
now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of New Jersey: 

That this House hereby pays solemn tribute to the mem- 
ory of Martin Luther King, Jr., and upon the occasion of his 
48th birthday urges the people of this State and all Amer- 
icans to pause and reflect upon the meaning of life, the 
lesson of his ideals and achievements, and the dreadful 
warning of his death; and, 

Be It Farther Resolved, That this House earnestly com- 
mends to all people the assumption of a true commitment 
to the ideals of freedom justice, equality and brotherhood 
for which Dr. King labored, and for which he gave his life. 

Mr. Merlino moved that Senate Xo. 1689, as amended, 
be placed back on second reading for the purpose of further 
amendment, which motion was adopted and on motion the 
amendments were adopted by the following vote :

Appropriation $35,993,619"

This bill as passed by the Legislature would appropriate 
nearly $36 million for various governmental programs. This 
money has been made available by revisions in expected 
revenues during the current fiscal year. Although this 
surplus revenue could be spent without imposing additional 
taxes, I cannot support spending money simply because it is 
available. The taxpayer has a right to demand that each 
dollar spent is absolutely needed ; since I cannot agree that 
the $36 million which would have been spent by this bill 
is essential, I am forced to cut this appropriation by $16 
million. 

Over the past three years, the State government and the 
Legislature have made hard decisions which have placed 
New Jersey on a path toward fiscal responsibility and pru- 
dence. We have cut costs, ending a decade of average annual 
State budget increases of 16.8% so that costs in the last two 
fiscal years to support State government have been held to 
only a 2.4% increase. We have taken steps toward an equi- 
table tax structure, one which lowers the burden on the home- 
owner, the poor and elderly and which makes New Jersey 
attractive once more to the development of new business and 
employment opportunities. This Legislature has taken the 
unprecedented step of restricting by law increases in spend- 
ing by government at all levels. 

In securing the passage of the various items in this bill, 
individual legislators have worked to convince their 
colleagues of the need for particular programs. In some 
cases, these programs would benefit a particular area of the 
State ; in others a certain group or interest would gain. The 



MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 1977 83 

legislators who successfully pressed the interests of their 
constituents should be congratulated. They did their jobs 
well. 

I also recognize that some of these requests originated 
from the State agencies, which have understandably sought 
more support for the programs which they consider im- 
portant. In some cases, the length of time which has passed 
since this bill was originally proposed has enabled us to 
find other monies to substitute for items which the Legisla- 
ture justifiably thought vital. Again, the Legislature 
deserves no criticism for the changed situation caused by 
the passage of time. 

Yet it is my job to make sure that the progress we have 
made is not lost simply because we are in the unusual situa- 
tion of having some surplus, it is my job to force the State 
departments to make do with what they have, to seek im- 
proved productivity from their workers or to defer or 
abandon new purchases. The task of cutting programs 
which would aid worthy projects, groups or individuals is 
not one which is likely to win friends or political favor, 
either within or outside State government; it is however, 
the job which I can and must do if we have any hope of 
convincing New Jersey taxpayers that their money is spent 
only for the essential services of government. 



We have made significant progress in recent years in 
strengthening the Legislative Services Agency and the 
Office of Fiscal Affairs. Nevertheless, the restoration of the 
sum provided in this bill would permit the Agency and Office 
to escape the spending reductions which have been pre- 
viously imposed on all executive branch agencies. The 
Agency and Office can accept the restraints of the limited 
revenues, and utilize presently available funds. 

The bill would restore funds to the Intergovernmental 
Relations Commission to enable the State to continue its 
membership in the Education Commission of the States and 
the Atlantic State Marine Fisheries Commission. There 
have been questions raised concerning the value to the 
State from membership in the first organization, and 
participation in the second may be no longer needed as a 
result of recent federal legislation creating new regional 
fisheries councils. In both cases, it seems best to reevaluate 



84 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

the merits of participation in these groups at the beginning 
of the next fiscal years. 

During the 1975 fiscal year, the Legislature passed three 
new laws requiring administration by the Department of 
Insurance. Although some funds were previously provided 
which enabled the Department to complete some planning, 
full implementation of the new laws will require additional 
support. In the current year, the Department may be able 
to shift funds from unfilled positions to continue its phased 
assumption of these new responsibilities. In the budget for 
the new fiscal year, we will reevaluate the scope of the pro- 
grams in an attempt to fund the administration of these laws 
at an adequate level. Since full implementation will not 
take place in the current year, the Department should not 
need the funds appropriated by this bill. 

The bill provides funds for the creation of a new position 
in the Department of Agriculture to administer the assist- 
ance program for soil conservation districts. This program 
has been previously administered by existing staff, and it 
seems unlikely that a significant improvement in the pro- 
gram will result from the addition of this position. 

The bill provides funding for programs in the Depart- 
ment of Health for lead poison controls and youth camp 
safety. Presently, with the aid of federal funds and the 
part-time use of inspectors employed in other programs, the 
State performs basic services in each area. Even with the 
funds provided in this bill, I am advised that the State's 
program would only be a cosmetic effort to treat problems 
of wide scope and magnitude. It would not be responsible 
to approve this bill when much more substantial programs 
are needed at levels of support beyond the State's ability 
to pay. 

Funds would have been appropriated to the Department 
of Education for additional hearing examiners. If neces- 
sary, the Department may be able to reallocate existing 
resources for this purpose during the balance of the current 
year until the extent of the backlog can be reevaluated in 
the process of preparing the budget for the next fiscal year. 

The Public School Education Act of 1975 requires that 
the State provide for the educational services of children 
eligible for day training for the mentally retarded. The 
assumption of the State's responsibilities for such educa- 



MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 1977 85 

tion raises difficult and complicated questions concerning 
the nature and extent of the required programs and funding. 
Before we begin to spend money in this area, the State 
needs a comprehensive plan to ensure that our expenditures 
produce the best possible results for the affected children. 
I have directed that such a plan promptly be developed to 
identify the needed standards and level of funding for this 
important program. 

Since the introduction of this bill, it has become clear that 
start-up costs for the Pingry Regional Day School will not 
be required in the current fiscal year. This item has accord- 
ingly been deleted. 

The Public School Education Act provided that minimum 
standards of education would be set so that we could better 
assess the quality of education offered children throughout 
the State. I strongly support this concept. As with the other 
fiscal reforms enacted during the past year, this law is 
important to convince the taxpayer that he is getting full 
value for each dollar spent on education. Since the Depart- 
ment has existing funds from unfilled positions, I do not 
believe that there is a need for additional funds for the 
months remaining in the present fiscal year in order to com- 
mence this program. I have accordingly eliminated the 
$92,560 allocated by this bill. I intend to monitor the imple- 
mentation of this program closely, and believe that the De- 
partment will be in a better position at the end of the fiscal 
year to assess its progress and determine the need for any 
additional funds. 

The battle against cancer must be a high priority of 
government. I have created a Cabinet Committee on Cancer 
Control to coordinate and focus State cancer programs. 
This Committee has recently filed an application for $6.8 
million in federal funds to support a wide variety of cancer 
research and control activities. The Legislature has also 
demonstrated justifiable concern in creating a Commission 
which presently is reviewing legislative proposals to esta- 
blish and fund cancer programs. 

The $435,903 appropriation which this bill would provide 
to support long-term basic research activities at the Insti- 
tute of Medical Research at Camden is only a small propor- 
tion of the support needed by this excellent facility. In view 
of the State's budgetary situation, it is clear that the Insti- 
tute needs more stable funding to support its projects. I 



86 JOURNAL OF THE SEXATE 

have reduced the current appropriation to the $350,000 which 
was provided to the Institute in past years, and have 
directed my Cabinet Committee to work with the Institute 
toward obtaining a more secure source of money than 
■ral State revenues. This appropriation allows for the 
continuance of the program in Camden. 

We can be proud of the fiscal controls which Xew Jersey 
lias imposed on the costs of the Medicaid program. As a 
result of controls on hospital rate increases, vigorous in- 
vestigation and prosecution of fraud, and other factors. I 
have been advised that a substantial surplus in the Medi- 
caid account can be anticipated during the current year. 
Because of this surplus, funds appropriated by this bill for 
two Medieaid-related programs are no longer needed. 

One of the cutbacks in the Medicaid program made during 
the 1976 fiscal year was a reduction of the fee allowed to 
providers of medical care services. This appropriation 
would permit the cost of these services to be increased to 
the 1975 amount. The Legislature has approved this long- 
deferred increase, and I concur that the increase is 
warranted. Since there are now surplus funds available, I 
am directing the Department to reallocate these funds to 
implement this fee adjustment, and the present appropria- 
tion is unnecessary. 

As with the increase in provider fees, the Legislature 
also acted prudently in increasing the amount for investiga- 
tion of Medicaid fraud. In comparison with other sfc 
Xew Jersey's efforts in curtailing fraud have been highly 
successful. Again, however, the current surplus in the 
Medicaid account can be reallocated for this purpose, thus 
eliminating the need for the appropriation. 

The Garden State School District receives funds for 
distribution to the various correctional institutions for 
inmate training programs. Funds were added in antici- 
Lon of cutbacks in federal support of such programs. 
However, there is currently a balance of unexpended funds 
for this program which can be reallocated to eliminate the 
for this appropriation. 

The Department of Community Affairs would have re- 

<'d an additional $100,000 for housing code enforcement. 

of unfilled positions, there is currently a surplus 

in this account. If additional activities are warranted, they 

"ne financed by this surplus. 



MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 1977 87 

The Office of Hispanic Affairs has been measurably 
strengthened in the last year so that it can serve the needs 
of the State's Hispanic community. The appropriation for 
Spanish Speaking Projects increased from $250,000 in 1976 
to $400,000 in 1977, and I intend to provide additional sup- 
port in the budget for the new fiscal year. These past and 
proposed appropriations are sufficient to eliminate any need 
for this supplemental funding. 

The Chief Justice has requested substantial additional 
funding for the improvement of court operations and sup- 
port. I have reduced the appropriation to $750,000, which 
will permit a start of these projects. Meanwhile, I hope 
that new efforts can be made to obtain alternative sources 
of funding from federal agencies for some of the projects 
covered by this money. 

The former program of State aid to local health pro- 
grams was terminated at the end of the 1975 calendar year. 
This appropriation of $2,332,013 would reinstitute the 
program at a point when continued State funding is unlikely 
because of limited revenues for existing programs. Further- 
more, under the current State aid formula for distribution, 
these funds would not be distributed in a most effective 
manner. This State aid formula should be reviewed in the 
coming months. It seems unwise to expend this substantial 
sum at the present time under the current formula. 

The appropriation of $3 million to the Jersey City 
Medical Center is intended to subsidize its operating deficit. 
I am concerned about the existing controls over the financial 
management of the Center. The Legislature has passed a 
companion bill currently before me which indicates that 
some voluntary improvements in operations have been 
made. I have been assured that other actions will be taken 
to impose tighter fiscal controls on the Center's operations. 
While I am, with some reluctance, approving this appro- 
priation in the interests of the Center's patients, I am doing 
so only on the basis of assurances of the Center's coopera- 
tion in reorganizing its operations. My approval should 
not be viewed as a precedent for future funding of deficits 
of the Center or other hospitals. To ensure adequate moni- 
toring of State funds and an ongoing oversight role, I shall 
submit legislation providing for appointment by the Gov- 
ernor of two members on the Center's governing board. 
The Center should take steps now to avoid the necessity for 
this appropriation next year. 



88 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 



The $450,000 appropriated for shore protection projects 
would be in addition to $1 million provided in the past year. 
While there is a backlog* of current projects, it is my under- 
standing that the time required for approvals of pending 
applications for the already authorized funds will eliminate 
any need for this money in the current year. The sum in the 
original budget is more than adequate for construction- 
ready projects. It may also be possible to secure federal 
funding of certain projects if additional public works 
monies are approved by the Congress and the President. 
Under such circumstances, I do not believe this appropria- 
tion is justified at the present time. 

The special appropriation for a beach maintenance 
project to the Borough of Keansburg would set a bad prece- 
dent. If funds were available, there should be standards for 
a comprehensive program in this area. One municipality 
should not be favored when there are insufficient funds to 
establish the program on a more comprehensive basis. 

The $4,790,952 appropriation to the county colleges may 
represent, in my view, an unfortunate reward to certain 
institutions which have not made adequate efforts to live 
within budget restrictions imposed on other governmentally 
supported agencies. This money is purportedly needed 
because of problems related to enrollment increases in the 
1974-75 fiscal year. By approving this full sum, we would 
pay funds to certain colleges which have failed to adjust 
their programs and spending to the level of funding identi- 
fied in the budget. Other institutions may have a demon- 
strated need for these sums because of factors outside their 
control. After consultation with the Chancellor of Higher 
Education, I have determined that this appropriation can 
be reduced to $2 million, which should be a sufficient level of 
funding for those institutions which can justify their 
requests. I have further directed that these funds should 
only be expended upon the recommendation of the Chan- 
cellor that a county college has demonstrated the existence 
of fiscal problems related to enrollment overruns during 
the 1974-75 fiscal year. It would be unfair to the other 
institutions which have learned to cut back in view of 
current fiscal restraints if I approved this entire 
appropriation. 

The current appropriation for the Revolving Housing 
Development and Demonstration Grant Fund was increased 



MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 1977 89 

by $1.2 million over the $3 million provided in 1976, even 
though other activities of the Department of Community 
Affairs were substantially reduced. There also may be 
alternative funds from bond accounts or other sources for 
the program which would avoid the need for this additional 
expenditure. 

Appropriation of $400,000 has again been approved to 
create a new aid program for depressed rural areas. The 
Legislature has before it a companion bill to authorize this 
program. I question whether the formula provided in the 
pending bill before the Legislature fairly treats those areas 
in greatest need, and will work with the Legislature to 
revise the formula. Meanwhile, I do not think it proper to 
appropriate this money until the Legislature completes 
action on the manner in which the money should be spent, 
and will reconsider this expenditure when the authorization 
bill, and a separate appropriation measure, reaches my 
desk. 

The bill would have appropriated $1,050,000 to restore a 
program dropped in the 1976 budget to reimburse munici- 
palities for revenues lost from the earlier repeal of munici- 
pal franchise taxes on motor buses. The municipalities have 
received additional support from federal and State govern- 
ments through revenue sharing, and have learned to adjust 
to the loss of this revenue. 



There is nothing wrong with a constant monitoring of 
State expenditures. The Legislature has done it well. 
I believe that my record of limiting expenditures in the past 
three years indicates they can be controlled. I recognize 
the need for constant vigilance and communication with the 
Legislature to achieve this purpose. I will try my best, 

Respectfully,

150 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 



State of New Jersey, 

e Department, 
February 14, 1977

Executive Department, [ 



To the Senate: 



Pursuant to Article V, Section I, paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 720 with 
my objections, for reconsideration. 

This bill amends the statute governing the practice of 
podiatry. It deletes current restrictions against certain 
types of treatment on the foot and lower leg and permits 
the podiatrist to "treat any ailment of the human foot and 
those anatomical structures of the leg governing the func- 
tions of the foot including local manifestation of systemic 
diseases of any other part of the body." The bill also 
deletes restrictions against treatment of certain types of 
diseases, as they affect the foot, such as tuberculosis, 
osteomyelitis, malignancies, syphilis and diabetes; the bill 
deletes restrictions against treatment of certain types of 
injuries to the foot, 

Au amendment, which put the bill in its filial form, would 
permit a podiatrist to treat "those anatomical structures 
of the leg governing functions of the foot," I am informed 
that this amendment was intended to better define the 
intent of the bill by clearly indicating that only structures 
affecting the foot could be treated by a podiatrist. However, 
this language could be interpreted to permit treatment of 
structures of the leg governing functions of the foot regard- 
less of whether there is any ailment in the lower leg or 
foot and regardless of location of such anatomical struc- 
tures on the leg. Thus, this language appears to broaden 
the effect of the bill beyond the scope intended; I am advised 
by the Board of Medical Examiners that tins language 
should be deleted. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 720 for 
reconsideration and recommend that it be amended

172 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

Assembly No. 2358 was taken up, read a second time, and 
ordered to a third reading. 

The following* communication was received from the 
Governor and filed: 



i 



State of New Jersey, 

Office of the Governor, 

February 17, 1977. J 

To the Senate: 



Pursuant to Article V, Section 1, Paragraph 15 of the 
Constitution, I am appending to Senate Bill No. 1501 (Cor- 
rected Copy) at the time of signing it, this statement of the 
items, or parts thereof, to which I object so that each item, 
or part thereof, so objected to shall either not take effect or 
shall be modified. 

1. On page 1-2: 

"11420-160. Consumer Affairs — Professional Boards 
Thomas W. Birdsall, 635 17th Avenue, Belmar, New 
Jersey 07719, for loss and resultant consequences of erron- 
eous charge of gross negligence, incompetency, etc., by the 
New Jersey State Board of Professional Engineers and 
Land Surveyors in June of 1974, payable from funds appro- 
priated to the State Board of Professional Engineers and 
Land Surveyors, $4,400." 

This item is deleted in its entirety. 

2. On page 3: 

"600. Department of Transportation 

Borough of Netcong, c/o Borough Officials and Meyerson 
and Kron, Esquires, 46 Main Street, Netcong 07857, for 
drainage expenses resulting from flooding due to construc- 
tion of Route 80, pavable from funds appropriated to the 
Department, $35,000."" 

This item is deleted in its entirety. 

3. On page 4: 

"73100. Court Operations 

County of Morris, Court House, Morristown. New Jersey 
07960, c/o Robert T. Natoli, County Treasurer, for overtime 
expended by the Sheriff's Office for security in the jury 
selection for the Squires and Chesimard Jury, $7,49L" 

This item is deleted in its entiretv. 



THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1977 173 

4. On page 4, line 7: 

"Total Appropriation, Claims $105,692" 

This item is reduced to $98,201. 

5. On page 4, line 14: 

"Total Supplemental Appropriation $107,692" 

This item is reduced to $100,201. 

Senate Bill No. 1501 (Corrected Copy) is a supplemental 
appropriations bill to authorize payment of certain claims 
filed against the State of New Jersey. I have decided, for 
the reasons below, to deny payment of the following claims. 

The Birdsall claim for $4,400 involves a complaint filed 
by the Attorney General before the State Board of Pro- 
fessional Engineers and Land Surveyors against Mr. Bird- 
sall, a licensed professional engineer. The complaint alleged 
gross negligence in the review and approval of a subdivi- 
sion plan while acting as a township engineer. The State 
retained an expert witness prior to the filing of the Com- 
plaint, and this expert offered the opinion that Mr. Birdsall 
had been grossly negligent. During the course of the hear- 
ing, this expert changed his opinion and the proceedings 
were then voluntarily dismissed against the claimant. Bird- 
sall claims that he spent $8,800 defending against the 
charges. The New Jersey Tort Claims Act bars this type of 
claim. 

The claim should be rejected. On the basis of the expert's 
original opinion, there was probable cause to bring the com- 
plaint and there has been no showing of malice. Many 
administrative agencies hold such disciplinary hearings. 
Imposition of the costs of an unsuccessful prosecution upon 
the agency could increase the pressure to find against the 
defendant or decrease the bringing of such actions in close 
cases. Where there has been no abuse of discretion in the 
bringing of the action, the administrative agency should not 
be penalized. 

The Borough of Netcong claim is based on proposed costs 
which would be incurred by the Borough for the upgrading 
of storm drains along Route 46. The municipality contends 
that the Department of Transportation caused flooding in 
a certain area when constructing Interstate 80. The Depart- 
ment of Transportation concedes that there is flooding at 
the area in question and that present drainage is inadequate. 
The Department maintains, however, that construction of 
Route 80 was an insignificant contributory factor to the 



174 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 



present situation. The Department maintains that the 
problem can be properly corrected only on a larger scale, 
through the initiation of a more expensive project involving 
the State, the Borough of Netcong, Morris County, a rail- 
road and the acquisition of certain private property rights. 
This claim will not resolve the problem, and is an inappro- 
priate response to the flooding situation. 

The County of Morris claim of $7,491 is for overtime 
expenses incurred by the Sheriff's Office of Morris County 
for security in the jury selection for a trial. The trial was 
transferred from Middlesex to Morris County to assure the 
defendants the opportunity to obtain a fair and impartial 
trial. This is a normal procedure followed when a question 
exists in the county where venue is regularly set of the fair- 
ness of that proceeding. It remains my view, as I have 
stated in vetoing this claim in prior years, that the expense 
of providing security through the Sheriff's Office in a 
particular county is not an appropriate expense for the 
Judiciary. 

Respectfully, 

/s/ BRENDAN BYRNE, 

Governor.

W^hereas, The Senate and the General Assembly have 
passed Senate No. 1271 making application to the Congress

amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and 

Whereas, The Attorney General, by letter opinion to 
the Governor dated February 18, 1977, has held that under 
Article V of the United States Constitution the action taken 
by the Legislature in passing Senate No. 1271 does not 
require the approval and signature of the Governor. 

Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Neiv Jersey: 

1. The Secretary of the Senate is directed to deliver 
Senate No. 1271 to the Secretary of State together with a 
copy of this resolution. 

2. The Secretary of State is directed to file Senate 
No. 1271 in the manner applicable to concurrent resolutions 
passed by the Legislature. 



MONDAY, MABCH 21, 1977 197 

3. The Secretary of State is requested and directed to 
certify to the Secretary of the United States Senate and the 
Clerk of the United States House of Representatives that 
the New Jersey Legislature has passed 1976 Senate No. 1271 
and to forward copies thereof to other state legislature.- as 
directed by section 2 of said Senate Xo. 1271. 

The Institutions, Health and Welfare Committee reported

Senate Xo. 1635, as amended, was taken up, read a second

The following messages from the Governor were received 
and filed : 

State of Xew Jersey, 

Executive Department, 

March 21, 1977. J 
To the Senate: 

Pursuant to Article V, Section 1, Paragraph 14(a) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill Xo. 3029 with- 
out my approval. 

This bill would affect the procedures for filling the 

Assembly vacancy created by the election of Joseph A. 
LeFante to the United States Congress. The bill would 
permit the county committees of each political party to 
nominate candidates for any special election to fill such a 
vacancy without having to conduct a special primary elec- 
tion. It would not be fair now to vest anew and broad power 
in county committee members when, at the time of their elec- 
tion, it was not known to the public. 

My approval of this bill at this time would be interpreted 
in the Thirty-first District as substantially aiding one fac- 
tion of one political party over another. I am not prepared 
to do that. 

Therefore, I herewith return Senate Bill Xo. 3029 without 
my approval. 

Respectfully. 

BREXDAX BYRXE.

the authority to require any energy industry doing business 
within the State to submit information, to prepare an 
emergency allocation plan of energy resources in the event 
of an impending serious shortage of energy, to establish 
an energy information system, to monitor prices charged 
for energy within the State and to design a program for the 
conservation of energy. 

I have no objection to the basic provisions of this pro- 
posed legislation, and indeed the sponsor has noted that this 
bill was primarily drafted by my staff. The one area of 
disagreement has been the sponsor's insistence that the bill 
take this Office from its present location within the Depart- 
ment of Public Utilities. 

There has been much controversy over the proper loca- 
tion of this Office. My personal view remains that the De- 
partment of Public Utilities is the most appropriate agency 
for the Office 's functions. During the recent crisis, I believe 
that the Department of Public Utilities and the Office 
worked so effectively together that New Jersey's per- 
formance in dealing with the emergency was unsurpassed 
in the Nation. The Department is the most directly con- 
cerned with energy matters. It has the most experience and 
contacts with those who produce, distribute and use energy. 
Its regulatory authority over rates and its investigatory 
powers can, if effectively employed, be strong aids to the 
planning and conservation programs of the Energy Office. 
During recent months, the Department has demonstrated 
that it can realize its potential as a strong forum for protec- 
tion of the public interest. Also, there would be a saving of 
close to $100,000 from general revenues during the next 
fiscal year if the Office remained in the Department, where 



MONDAY, MARCH 21, 1977 199 

it could be supported by the assessment against public 
utilities. This saving will be lost, and the burden placed on 
the general taxpayer, by removal of the Office from the 
Department. 

The bill now before me places the Energy Office in the 
Department of Law and Public Safety, but expressly ex- 
empts the Office from any supervisory control of the 
Attorney General, who is the executive head of the Depart- 
ment. I do not believe the Office should be associated, even 
indirectly, with the chief law enforcement agency of the 
State government. In the recent crisis, some criticized 
what they saw as an undue emphasis on law enforcement in 
our emergency conservation steps. The Office should be 
basically a planning and policy formulation agency, and 
should not be placed within a department which has no posi- 
tive association with energy policy other than its law en- 
forcement capability. 

Although I continue to believe that the Department of 
Public Utilities is the most appropriate location for this 
Office, I recognize that many legislators hold a contrary 
view. In the current energy crisis, there is a need for com- 
promise by both the Executive and the Legislature. I feel 
that such a compromise, and many practical benefits as well, 
can be forged through my recommendation that the Legis- 
lature concur in the placement of the Office in the Executive 
Department for a period of five years. 

The most recent energy crisis has shown again that the 
Governor must take a personal and continuing role in the 
development and implementation of our energy programs. 
At the commencement of my term in Office and again in the 
past weeks, I have not hesitated to take extraordinary steps 
to protect the public, or to criticize the federal policies 
which have led to an understandable lack of public credi- 
bility concerning the amounts and prices of our supplies 
provided by the giant energy companies. The State has 
fought for programs which would have forced these com- 
panies to disclose the information which they possess on the 
extent of our supplies, and to guarantee that those supplies 
are provided at a fair price. I continue to oppose those 
who would give away our natural resources to giant com- 
panies without effective controls on price or production. 
In the past, my direction of energy policy has brought 
criticism from those excluded from my confidence ; these 



200 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

petty bureaucratic concerns should not mask the fact that 
this State has had a vigorous and forceful position in the 
national energy debate. 

Placement of the Energy Office under the Governor's 
direct control will confirm the central position which energy 
concerns must have in the coming years. The Governor has 
an overall view of the various programs of the respective 
State departments, and is able to use the powers of his 
Office to implement needed actions promptly and effectively. 
In a crisis, the Governor's extraordinary powers and 
responsibilities are a necessary part of an effective response 
to the emergency situation. Unlike the present bill, the 
placement of the Office within the Governor's control will 
give the Office effective authority but not exempt it from 
necessary supervision. 

I have also recommended placement of the Office in the 
Executive Department for a period of five years. This will 
permit a test of this Office's performance in the present 
structure, and a reevaluation of our energy programs in 
light of future concerns. 

The time for political bickering is over. This is a good 
bill, and I feel the compromise which I now propose to 
the Legislature makes the Energy Office a stronger and 
more effective agency. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 636 (OCR) 
with my recommendations for reconsideration and recom- 
mend that it be amended as follows : 

Page 2, Section 3, Lines 6-7: Delete "Department of Law 
and Public Safety" and insert "Executive Branch in the 
Office of the Governor". 

Page 4, Section 4, Lines 1-8: Delete in its entirety. Insert 
"4. The State Energy 7 Office created in the Department of 
Public Utilities pursuant to Executive Order is hereby 
created by statute and continued and established in the 
Executive Branch in the Office of the Governor for a period 
of five years from the effective date of this act. ' ' 

Respectfully, 

BRENDAN BYRNE,

State of New Jersey 

Executive Department }■ 

April 18, 1977. J 

To the Senate: 

Pursuant to Article V, Section I, paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 808 with my 
objections, for reconsideration. 

The purpose of Senate Bill No. 808 is to protect New 
Jersey stockholders and New Jersey corporations from 
precipitate and economically unwise takeovers through the 
use of tender offers. 

The bill is designed to give investors sufficient time and 
information to fully assess the reasonableness and ramifica- 
tions of a tender offer, and to give target companies ade- 
quate time to defend their management policies to their 
stockholders and to clarify questions as to their financial 
status. Insofar as this bill accomplishes that intent by 
requiring an offeror to file a full disclosure statement with 
the Bureau of Securities and the target company twenty 
days before an effective offer is made, I am persuaded that 
it is worthwhile. Twenty-three other states have enacted 
similar legislation and New Jersey must also respond to 
the threat of unfair takeovers. 

The corporate community of this State is legitimately 
concerned that the recognized evils of unregulated take- 
overs will result in the indiscriminate raiding of its assets, 
will force business to seek sanctuary in other states and 
cause substantial loss of jobs, adding to our already severe 
problems of unemployment and urban blight. 



220 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

However, the State's concern to protect its corporate 
citizens should not be so zealously exercised that it frus- 
trates legitimate takeover efforts. Tender offer takeovers 
are often a desirable and efficient way for stockholders to 
rid themselves of ineffective or incompetent management. 
It is my opinion that this bill is too cumbersome in its 
attempt to restrict takeover and that a more limited and 
balanced approach would still provide the necessary 
protection. 

Because I do not wish to delay this needed legislation, 
I have decided to return it to you with the recommendation 
that certain amendments be adopted. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Assembly Bill No. 808 
(OCR) for reconsideration and recommend that it be 
amended as follows :

Messrs. Wallwork and Russo offered the following resolu- 
tion, which was read and adopted : 

A Resolution directing the Senate Energy and Environ- 
ment Committee to undertake a review and investigation 
of the natural gas supply situation with respect to New 
Jersey's natural gas utilities to determine whether or not 
it would be in the public interest for such utilities to add 
new natural gas customers. 

Whereas, The natural gas crisis from which this State 
has only recently emerged has properly made the citizens 
of New Jersey, legislators and State officials aware of the 
importance of adequate supplies of natural gas to insure the 
public health, safety and welfare ; and, 

Whereas, During that natural gas crisis of the winter of 
1976-77 it was suggested that one of the reasons for its 
severity, if not its cause, was the fact that the Department 
of Public Utilities had granted, in June, 1976, permission to 
add new customers to two of the largest natural gas utilities 
in New Jersey: Public Service Electric and Gas Company, 
and Elizabethtown Gas Company; and, 

Whereas, Regardless of whether or not the department's 
action in June, 1976, led to, or exacerbated, the natural gas 
crisis that afflicted the citizens and businesses of New Jersey 
in January and February, 1977, the fact that the Depart- 
ment of Public Utilities believed in June, 1976, that supplies 
of natural gas were sufficient to permit the addition of new 
customers implies, at the very least, that the State's supply 
projections were faulty even for the short term and almost 
wholly inaccurate for the long term ; and, 

Whereas, Recent press releases and newspaper reports 
indicate that at least three of New Jersey's natural gas 
utilities appear to be requesting permission from the De- 
partment of Public Utilities to add new natural gas cus- 
tomers, notwithstanding this State's recent experiences and 
the controversy that exists nationally about the genuine 



264 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 



nature and extent of the natural gas supply situation; now, 
therefore, 

Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of New Jersey: 

1. The Senate Energy and Environment Committee is 
directed to undertake a review and investigation of the 
natural gas supply situation with respect to New Jersey's 
natural gas utilities to determine whether or not it would 
be in the public interest for such utilities to add new natural 
gas customers, be they residential, commercial, or industrial, 
in New Jersey at this time. 

2. The committee shall be entitled to call to its assistance 
and avail itself of the services of such employees of any 
State, county or municipal department, board, bureau, com- 
mission or agency as it may require and as may be available 
to it for said purpose, and to employ such stenographic and 
clerical assistants and incur such traveling and other mis- 
cellaneous expenses as it may deem necessary, in order to 
perform its duties, and as may be within the limits of funds 
appropriated or otherwise made available to it for said 
purposes. The committee shall also be entitled to request 
any information or assistance from any relevant agency of 
the Federal government, and from any person, natural or 
corporate, which the committee believes will be useful to it 
in conducting the review and investigation called for herein. 

3. The committee may meet and hold hearings at such 
place or places as it shall designate during the sessions or 
recesses of the Legislature and shall report its findings and 
recommendations to the Legislature as soon as practicable, 
but in no event later than 60 days after the adoption of this 
resolution, accompanying the same with any legislative bills 
which it may desire to recommend for adoption by the 
Legislature.

State of New Jersey, 

Executive Department, I 

May 5, 1977. J 

To the Senate: 

Pursuant to Article V, Section I, Paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 3099 (2nd 
OCR) with my objections for reconsideration. 

This bill permits the political parties to apportion state 
committee membership in accordance with the rules and 
bylaws of their respective state committees. In order to 
allow for the election of state committee members under 
such a plan at this year's primary, the bill includes a com- 
pressed schedule of dates for promulgation of such reappor- 
tionment plan and notification to county chairmen and 
municipal clerks. 



320 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

The legislation is intended to allow the state Democratic 
committee to reapportion itself in accordance with the 
mandate of national Democratic party rules. The national 
party's rules call for apportionment of all official party 
bodies according to one-man, one-vote principles. 

I strongly support such reapportionment, and note that 
New Jersey law is guided by those principles in prescribing 
the formation of county committees. It is only the parties' 
state committees that are inconsistent, a relic of prereappor- 
tionment legislatures. 

For this reason, I welcome the Legislature's action in 
passing legislation like Senate Bill 3099. It demonstrates 
a commitment to making party institutions workable instru- 
ments of the popular will. 

AVhile commending the Legislature for its decision to 
reform this archaic structure, I must point out that the bill 
presented to me does contain two serious deficiencies which 
prevent me from approving it in its current form. 

Firstly, two of the three deadlines prescribed in the bill 
for promulgation of rules and notification to relevant 
persons had already passed by the time that the Legislature 
completed action on the bill. The hope that a newly-appor- 
tioned state committee could be elected at this June's 
primary accordingly could not be realized. Therefore, I 
am recommending that, for a state committee that elects 
to reapportion itself, committee members chosen in the 1977 
primary election shall serve for only one year, and that a 
new committee be elected in June of 1978 to serve until 1981. 

Secondly, I do not believe that the Legislature should 
grant to state party committees an unlimited power to 
restructure themselves. If the Legislature wishes to allow 
any discretion at all to the state party committees, it should 
be in the form of clearly prescribed options from which a 
state committee may choose. 

I therefore recommend that the bill be amended to provide 
the following options : 

(1) Apportionment of a 42-member committee, as under 
existing law, of one man and one woman from each county. 
I recommend this alternative with reluctance, because it 
does not provide for fair representation; nevertheless, I 
recognize that the Republican party has not yet indicated 



THURSDAY, MAY 5, 1977 321 

it would support reapportionment of its own state com- 
mittee in accordance with one-man, one-vote principles of 
equity. 

(2) Apportionment of an 80-member committee among 
counties according to population, except that eveiy county 
would have at least one vote. Each county would elect an 
equal number of men and women. 

(3) Apportionment of an 80-member committee accord- 
ing to the number of votes received by the Presidential 
candidate of said political party at the last preceding Presi- 
dential election. Each county would have at least one vote 
and would elect an equal number of men and women. 

I accordingly recommend the following amendments for 
concurrence hy the Legislature : 

Page 1, Section 1, Line 12: After "party" omit re- 
mainder of line and insert "in accordance with one of the 
following options : 

(a) one male and one female member of the State com- 
mittee to be elected in each county; 

(b) the State committee, composed of 80 members, to be 
apportioned among the several counties in accordance with 
population as determined at the most recent Federal decen- 
nial census; provided that each county have at least one 
vote ; and provided further than an equal number of males 
and females be elected from each county, even if this require

political party at the last preceding presidential election 
and provided that each county have at least one vote ; and 
provided further than an equal number of males and 
females be elected from each county, even if this require 
that a number of males and females with less than one full 
vote be elected."

Insert a new section 6 as follows: 

"6. (New section) a. On or before February 1, 1978, the

prescribing the apportionment of members of said com- 
mittee in accordance with section 1 of this amendatory and 
supplementary act, The bylaws shall be adopted by a 
majority of the members of the respective State Committee 
present and voting at a duly convened meeting of said State 
Committee at which a quorum of at least 50% plus one is 
present. The chairman of each such State Committee shall 
certify the adoption of its bylaws to the Secretary of State 
on or before February 15, 1978. 

b. In the event that a State Committee shall adopt on or 
before said date bylaws providing for an apportionment of 
members different from the apportionment under which the 
current members were elected, the terms of office of all 
members of such State Committee shall terminate on June 
13, 1978, notwithstanding any other provision of law, and 
a new State Committee shall be elected at the primary 
election to be held in 1978. 

c. If in any subsequent year a State Committee adopts 
bylaws to alter the apportionment of its members, such 
bylaws shall become operational and effective at the next 
primary election at which a Governor is to be elected."

Senate Resolution No. 3003 

A Senate Resolution to create a special committee to in- 
vestigate the dislocation of certain residents of Atlantic 

City. 



MONDAY, MAY 23, 1977 



Whereas, The Legislature is presently considering a bill 
to regulate the operation of casino gambling in Atlantic 
City; and 

Whereas, In anticipation thereof, plans for the recon- 
struction and development of large parts of Atlantic City 
have been initiated ; and 

Whereas, Such plans include the purchase of tracts of 
land upon which are constructed multiple dwellings and 
other residential tenant housing ; and 

Whereas, These purchases would necessarily lead to an 
alternate use of such housing and the consequent relocation 
of its tenants ; and 

Whereas, This dislocation and relocation would affect 
primarily the poor and minority residents of the City, and 
would be inconsistent with the expressed purposes and 
intent of the Constitutional amendment authorizing casino 
gambling and the implementing legislation, those purposes 
being the rejuvenation of the economy and the improvement 
of the quality of life in Atlantic City ; and 

Whereas, Because such residents represent a large part 
of the prospective work force in the City and, as residents, 
should be the beneficiaries of a revitalized Atlantic City, it 
is in the public interest to determine the propriety and effect 
of this dislocation and relocation; now, therefore 

Be It Resolved by the Senate of the State of Neiv Jersey: 

1. There is created a special Senate committee to be com- 
posed of four Senators to be appointed by the President of

The following communication was received from the 
Governor and filed : 

State of New Jersey, 

Executive Department, > 

May 23, 1977. J 

To the Senate: 

Pursuant to Article V, Section 1, paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill 1219, with my 
objections, for reconsideration. 

This bill would permit owners and employees of ''private 
long-term health care facilities" to occupy the third floor of 
such facilities, notwithstanding rules and regulations 
governing such facilities and enforcing the 1967 Life Safety 
Code, as amended and supplemented. The bill defines a 
"private long-term health care facility" as "a nursing 
home, skilled nursing home or intermediate care facility 
. . . which has a maximum 50-bed capacity and which does 
not accommodate Medicare or Medicaid patients". I agree 
with the general purposes of this bill, and find that it is 
desirable to permit owners and other personnel in small 
nursing homes to occupy the third floor of such facilities. 
Having responsible owners and personnel close at hand can 
serve to benefit the patients in such a facility. However, the 
Department of Health has expressed concern that such 



MONDAY, MAY 23, 1977 



personnel be in fact responsible, and not constitute a danger 
to the welfare of the patients through actions which may 
create hazards, for example, fire hazards, to the patients. I 
believe this end can be accomplished by limiting third floor 
occupants to owners, members of their immediate families, 
and licensed profesesionals employed at such facilities. The 
bill should also provide that individuals currently occupy- 
ing the third floor of such a facility should be permitted to 
remain in occupancy until such time as the individual ceases 
to be employed by that facility. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Senate Bill 1219 for recon- 
sideration and recommend that it be amended as follows : 

On Page 4, Line 48, Section 2: After "owners" delete 
"and employees" and insert ", members of their immediate 
families, and licensed professionals employed at such 
facilities". 

On Page 4, Section 2, After Line 48: Insert new Section 3 
to read as follows : 

"3. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, any 
individual occupant of the third floor of a private long-term 
health care facility at the time of the enactment of this Act, 
whether or not such individual is an owner, a member of his 
immediate family, or a licensed professional, shall be per- 
mitted by the Commissioner of the Department of Health 
to remain in such occupancy until such time as that in- 
dividual ceases to be employed by such facility. ' ' 

On Page 4, Section 3, Line 1: Delete "3." and insert "4.". 

Respectfully, 

[seal] BREXDAX BYRNE, 

Attest: Governor.

Acting Executive Secretary to the Governor.

Whereas, The Legislatures of the States of New Jersey

transit projects ; and, 

Whereas, The Port Authority, by reason of such enact- 
ments and to create a fund for mass transit projects did 
substantially increase all tolls charged on bridges and 
tunnels operated by them; and, 



392 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

Whereas, The Supreme Court of the United States has 
found that repeal of the 1962 covenant is unconstitutional, 
thereby substantially inhibiting further Port Authority in- 
volvement in mas- transit and frustrating the intent of the 
Legislatures of the respective states ; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That the Port Authority of New York 
and New Jersey be directed by all relevant authority to 
reduce all tolls previously increased to their former levels, 
and that such reduction be put into effect forthwith; and, 

Be It Further Resolved, That a study be undertaken as 
soon as reasonably possible to devise means of allocation of 
that portion of said tolls reflecting the increases already 
collected, for mass transit purposes in New Jersey and New 
York; and, 

Be It Further Resolved, That a certified copy of this reso- 
lution be forwarded to the Governors of the States of New 
Jersey and New York; members of the Port Authority of 
New York and New Jersey; the Presidents of the Senate 
and the Speakers of the Assemblv of New Jersey and New

The State of New Jersey Legislative Study Commission 
on the Hackensack Meadow Lands Final Report September 
1977 was received and filed. 

The following communication was received from the 
Governor and filed : 

Pursuant to Article V, Section I, paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 1440 with 
my objections, for reconsideration. 

Senate Bill No. 1440 would validate municipal land sales 
which have been made without passage of a resolution and 
without satisfying the advertising requirement, provided 
that the sales took place five years or more before the 
passage of this bill and no municpal tax or assessment 
default is involved. The purpose of this bill is to remove 
clouds from the marketability of these properties. 

Insofar as this bill accomplishes the above-mentioned 
purpose, I am persuaded that it is worthwhile. However, 
the passage of a resolution and the advertising of a sale are 
the major safeguards against corruption and self-dealing. 



SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1977 525 

Without those safeguards a possibility for serious abuse 
exists. 

I feel that placing a ceiling on the validated sales would 
limit the abuse potential. A ceiling of $1,000 would be 
acceptable and would resolve the problem to which the bill 
is addressed. 

Therefore, I have decided to return it to you with the 
recommendation that such an amendment be adopted. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Senate Bill Xo. 1440 for 
reconsideration and recommend that it be amended as 
follows : 

Page 1, Section 1, Line 15: After the first mention of the 
word ''act" insert ", and provided, further, that this Act 
shall not applv to individual sales where the sale price 
exceeded $1,000;" 

Respectfully, 

BREXDAX BYRXE, 

Governor. 

Attest : 

Jonx J. Degxax, 

Acting Executive Secretary to the Governor.

• The following conditional veto message was received from 
the Governor: 

State of New Jersey, 

Executive Department, [ 

November 21, 1977. J 

Pursuant to Article V, Section I, Paragraph 14(b) of the 
Constitution, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 1712 (2nd 
OCR), with my technical objection, for reconsideration. 

Senate Bill No. 1712 (2nd OCR) expands the definition 
of permissible Economic Development Authority projects to 
include (1) acquisition of real estate to be used by employ- 
ment-promoting enterprises, (2) acquisition of an equity 
interest (including capital stock) in any corporation which 
will encourage economic development, redevelopment, and 



552 JOURNAL OF THE SENATE 

employment, and (3) activities connected with development 
properties within an "urban growth zone." I believe 
Senate Bill No. 1712 (2nd OCR) is in the best interest of 
the people of the State and wholeheartedly support the 
purpose of this bill. 

However, a technical amendment is necessary to avoid 
the inadvertent repeal of language inserted in N. J. S. A. 
34:lB-3 by P. L. 1977, c. 43, approved March 3, 1977. 
P. L. 1977, c. 43 amended the Economic Development 
Authority Act to include motion picture and television 
studios and facilities as permissible Economic Development 
Authority projects. Senate Bill No. 1712 omits the language 
added earlier this year by P. L. 1977, c. 43. 

Accordingly, I herewith return Senate Bill No. 1712 (2nd 
OCR) for reconsideration and recommend that it be 
amended as follows: 

Page 5, Section 2, Line 83: After "prises," insert "in- 
cluding, but not limited to motion picture and television 
studios and facilities". 

Respectfully, 

BRENDAN BYRNE, 

Governor. 

Mr. Merlino offered the following resolution, which was 
read and adopted : 

Resolved, That Senate No. 1712 be given first reading

pursuant to the Governor's recommendations, be advanced

order :

recommendations. 

Mr. Merlino offered the following resolution, which was

Be It Resolved by the Senate by the vote of three-fourths
